Thomas Rhett closed his Home Team Tour opener with a cover of Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic.”
Rhett brought opening acts Kelsea Ballerini, Russell Dickerson and Ryan Hurd to the stage, too. After Rhett serenaded the crowd with the first verse, Dickerson sang next. Kelsea Ballerini wasn’t far behind, jumping on stage with Ryan Hurd for the choruses.
“24K Magic” isn’t the only Bruno Mars song Rhett has covered. The country singer performed “Uptown Funk” during tour performances in 2015, and recorded “When I Was Your Man” that year, too.”
It’s no surprise that Thomas Rhett would admit he’s a big Bruno Mars fan. “Bruno has always been one of my idols, if you will. Yeah, you can call it Country Bruno, whatever you want to call it,” He suggests.
The Home Team Tour started on Feb. 23 in Saginaw, Mich. Thomas Rhett will also headline a slot at Country Jam 2017 in Colorado this June. Originally, the tour would come to an end in Nashville. However, thanks to popular demand additional show dates are now on the calendar.
